  6. Multi-Object Deployment System (MODS)

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: MDA15018

    Ballistic missile threats include the potential for complex target scenes including countermeasures and debris in addition to lethal objects. In order to defend against this threat, the Ballistics Missile Defense System (BMDS) has been developed to intercept the targets. The construct of using multiple interceptors on a single target is both costly and taxing on the BMDS command control. However, ...
